new york times: The best Dance of 2018
“Another choreographer who reached a new peak this year was the tap artist Caleb Teicher. He, the pianist-composer Conrad Tao and six dancers gave a preview performance of “More Forever” as part of the Guggenheim Museum’s Works & Process series in October. (The finished product will be performed at the museum on Jan. 6 and 7.)” - Alastair Macaulay, NYTimes

“Teicher slaps the pallets with lightning speed, leaping from one to the other for contrast, matching Tao, note for accelerated note.” - Tom Huizenga, NPR Music
Caleb Teicher first received critical and audience acclaim when, at 17, he won a Bessie Award for Outstanding Individual Performance for his work in Michelle Dorrance and Dormeshia Sumbry-Edwards' Shared Evening. From there, he continued as a member of Dorrance Dance while dancing in The Chase Brock Experience, The Bang Group, West Side Story (Int'l Tour), and other dance/theater projects.
Caleb Teicher & Company (CT&Co), founded in 2015, seeks to expand the capacity of America’s rich music and dance traditions through innovative choreography, performance, and contextualization. Utilizing Tap Dance, Vernacular Jazz, Lindy Hop, and a mix of other dance styles born and bred in America, the company’s work represents a unique style of theatricality, humor, emotional expression, and aesthetic exploration.
With CT&Co, Teicher’s artistic reach has expanded to commissions from Works & Process at the Guggenheim, New York City Center, The Joyce Theater, several engagements with symphony orchestras (including the National Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center), and many national and international touring engagements with the company’s repertoire.
CT&Co’s work has been featured by The New York Times, The New Yorker, NPR Music, Vogue, Interview Magazine, Cultured Magazine, Dance Magazine, Dance Spirit, and other publications. His collaboration with Conrad Tao, More Forever, recently made the "Best of Dance 2018" list for The New York Times.
Caleb continues to engage with dance communities as an instructor at international Tap and Jazz Dance festivals and also spends his time as a director/choreographer for interdisciplinary work.
